korea, kim jong-un welcomed the troops at the front line with south korea, the communist regime unveiled new threats, including a possible nuclear attack. the u.n. security council pushed back by adopting sanctions. >> reporter: wolf, tensions remain high here on the korean peninsula, following days of aggressive rhetoric from north korea that says it is ready for war. the rogue state, which made the extraordinary threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the united states says it is still willing to nullify the armistice agreement that ended the korean war back in 1953. now once they do that, they begin the exercises which start next week. now no one really knows what it means but there are fears that there could be provocations from pyongyang. this comes in the wake of u.n. sanctions that were voted unanimously by the security council. and with china's support it sends a very strong message that they're also fed up with north korea's belligerent behavior. north korea says they're on high alert and ready for any attack. >> and ambassador susan rice is joining us from the united nat

korean dictator kim jong-un. believe it. rodman and members of the harlem globetrotters made the trip to pyongyang this week as part of a documentary project. there was no guarantee that they would meet kim jong-un, but turns out the north korean leader was up for playing host. here is the pair sitting courtside at an exhibition basketball game which was capped off with a party at kim jong-un's palace. it gets better. it seems dennis rodman failed to brush up on his koreas before heading overseas. check out this tweet. maybe i'll run into gangnam style dude while i'm here. that, of course, is a reference to the south korean rapper psy. not surprisingly given the tense relationship, psy was not amused tweeting back, i'm from south, man. >>> next, you may have noticed that every time a poll comes out about congress, their favorability rating is embarrassingly low. here is the question though. who are the 9% or 10% or 12% of people who do give them a thumbs up?

community. >> suarez: the sanctions aim to make it more difficult for north korea's leader, kim jong-un, to finance his nuclear and missile programs. in december, the north successfully fired a long-range rocket, saying it was designed to orbit a satellite. and last month, north koreans cheered scientists who carried out the country's third nuclear test. that event directly provoked today's u.n. action. north korea's closest ally, china, even helped draft the sanctions. >> we want to see full implementation of the resolution. the top priority now is to defuse the tension, bring down the heat. ( applause ) >> suarez: instead, the sounds and images from pyongyang today were all about defiance. civilians and members of the military staged a mass rally and state television carried a direct threat against the u.s. >> ( translated ): since the united states is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to preemptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest. >> suarez: north korea also threatened this week to nullify
defense on the west coast. >> chris: do you think that kim jong-un and the north koreans are a real threat to the u.s.? >> i don't think that threat is imminent and, i don't think they have the mechanisms necessary to really harm us but it is really good we are taking the precautionary measures to make sure they cannot do damage. it puts us in a different place as it relates to negotiating with them and, at the end of the day, chris, i know there's a lot of talk, 6-party talks and all kind of things that are occurring and all of us understand the key to this will be china. they are the ones that can actually affect the behavior in north korea because of the trade issues and certainly the support issues coming from china. into north korea. hopefully, china sees the threat to -- for nuclear proliferation in that part of the world, in the event they are not able to stop what now, is doing. >> chris: senator corker, senator durbin, thank you both. we'll have to leave it there. thank you for talking with us and, no doubt, there is tough bargaining ahead on the budget. thank you, gentlemen. >> t
north korea last week. he quoted kim jong-un as saying "i don't want to do war" and asking that president obama "call him." white house officials denounced the rodman visit as nothing more than a publicity stunt. for more on the sanctions and north korea's response, i'm joined by victor cha, a former national security council official, now a senior advisor at the center for strategic and international studies. and joseph detrani, formerly senior advisor and north korea mission manager in the office of director of national intelligence. he's now president of the intelligence and national security alliance. mr. cha, what did the security council vote to do in these latest sanctions. >> well, this latest round of sanctions, ray, came at three things. first is interdicting of cargo expected to be of north korean origin that carry missile parts or things of that nature. a blacklist on the import of certain items people can use for their weapons programs as well as individuals and the third element has to do with financial sanctions. trying to block -- u.n. member states blocking
that armistice agreement that fundamentally ended the korean war back in 1953. north korean leader kim jong-un has been down visiting his front-line troops and basically gave them a big war cry, saying to lull the enemy into the caldron, to break their waist and crack their wind pipes, a very visual and motive language, but we are used to that rhetoric coming from him, but while he was rallying the troops, the south koreans and the u.s. military are holding those joint military drills on the korean peninsula. and south korea has said that if there is any military provocation from pyongyang, that it will respond in a resolute and destructive manner, john. >> we're looking at pictures of these military drills just a second ago, and the u.s. and south korea, we have conducted drills like this before, so the question is, why is north korea really reacting so acongreggres here? >> reporter: it's a great question, john, because as you say, this is something that happens every single year. the americans and the south koreans, they are using some pretty advanced weaponry, the f-52 stealth, the b-52 bo
to show dictator gy kim jong un in islands that had a pep talk to "annihilate the enemy" anytime an order is issued. elsewhere, north korean army seasonals conducted military exercises in an apparent display of defiance against the u.s. and south korea. but the newly inaugurated south korean president, the first woman to hold the job, sought to project firmness in response. >> translator: i will deal strongly with north korea's provocation. >> reporter: this week the u.n. security council imposed new sanctions on what is already the most heavily sanctioned state for punishment for the nuclear test the north conducted last month, third in seven years. fresh from hosting dennis ro rodman, discussed a threat but was largely dismissed. >> the united states and the allies are repaired to deal with any threat and any reality that occurs in the world. >> reporter: the north has even gone so far to declare the intention to scrap the truce in place since 1953 that ended the korean war. the state department rejected suggestions that the steady application of sanctions may actually be helping the re

. this comes at the end of the week in which kim jong-un ended the 60-year peace deal with south korea and threatened the united states with a preemptive nuclear attack. joining me now is william cohen and, sir, i'm so glad you're here because this is kind of frightening jargon that's coming out of kim jong-un. i mean, is there any way to gauge how serious these threats are? to make sure this isn't all just bluster? >> well, there is a lot of bluster, but i think that he would understand that any threat to the united states that he seeks to carry out would be met with a response that certainly would alter the geography in that region of the world. and i think what we have to do, three things, number one, we have to lower the rhetoric, which we have done. we have to increase the training and readiness, which we're also doing of our troops in the region along with the south korean forces. and what we also have to do is intensify the sanctions against the north korean regime, which we're doing. and the final thing is president obama said we will reach out to you with an open hand, but we

't get any weirder, it does. here's kim jong-un palling around with dennis rodman one week and threatening pre-emptive war the next. we're trying to figure out what this means. he's a young untested leader. is part of an attempted test, the strength of the new president of south korea? is it, you know, some kind of an internal power move? does he need to show that he's a tough guy to his generals who at the end of the day are the military backbone of the regime? that's part of the puzzle. but at the end of the day, it won't mean anything more than this. for the first time, china has really from the start been on board with sanctions against north korea. they helped draft this resolution which tells you just how annoyed they are at north korea. they have, to a certain extend supported it in providing it with fuel and food and this seems to be the straw that broke china's back. >> yeah, because that is pretty significant because china together with the united states, all the other members of the u.n. security council, they are on board because in the past the chinese were the
heights. kim jong un nullified the arms of 60 years of uneasy peace at that. costing new sanctions levied by the u.n. security council carrying out missile and nuclear test. as they engage in two months of joint military drills. so far no sign of hostility along the zone, but the u.s. state department cautioning the impact may yet reveal itself. >> my understanding in the briefings we have had, mutual are meant to mac imac, but what the impact on the ground is not completely, not completely evident. again, this is clearly in a category of frederick threatening behavior and it is not appropriate and is not going to be helpful in terms of taking it in a more positive direction. lori: situation in afghanistan taking a deadly turn today. the tactic took the lives of two americans. the deaths from insider attacks in the country since 2008. fox news chief correspondent has our report. >> it got even more horrific today. two american soldiers killed by a person in afghan military uniform who turned his weapon on u.s. troops. just as in a state of anti-american comments by afghan president who ac
there with kim jong un. we look for rational answers why he did "x" or "y." with karzai, he is unstable. i don't want to speculate about his psychological health but the way he acts and the way he speaks he is mercurial and largely incomprehensible. it makes no sense whatsoever to accuse the united states of collaborating with the enemy unless you want america to leaf because we saw the reaction from joe manchin to angeer the americans in to leaving which will leave him alone. without any support, without any state run and he will end up at the top of the lamp post. as happened to the soviet, the leader of afghanistan in the sew yet days after the soviets left. the only possible irrationm explanation he promised the people he would take control of the prison at bagram air base. that was supposed to happen on the visit. it apparently didn't because of a last-minute dispute over the powers of the u.s. and afghans. and i think he might have been humiliated by fact he thought he could deliver and it turned out he can't get back the sovereignty he promised his people. so that may be an explanation.

. >> when kim jong-un he was an unknown quantity. but with more aggressive weapons development from the north koreaian yeah over the last couple of years, the nuclear test, and certainly an escalation in the rhetoric, if not outright threats to attack the united states. what is the take on him now? is he attempting to bargain his way to the bargaining table to get aid and money? or is he a more serious threat than first imagined or a more serious threat than his father? >> as you note, there's a lot of unknowns here. but we have to take seriously every provocative word and action that this new young leader has taken so far since he has come to power. e have seen historical trajectory here on where north korea will go to get the attention of the united states, to try to maneuver us into some position favorable into to them whether it is more assistance or bilateral engagement. but the fact is, this is the wrong way to go. the action he's taken and the actions they have taken and the words he's used is not going to project a more responsible, accountable relationship. >> isn't it the
